about this book

A powerful, documented study of the women's movement in the United States. Recounts time from abolitionist days to the present that demonstrates how the movement has always been hampered by the racist and classicist biases of its leaders.

"A historical study of how the three themes of the title became entangled in the growth of American society, given resonance by Miss Davis's insights into current women's concerns."—The New York Times Book Review

"A unique contribution to the growing body of literature on women in the United States...[Davis's] masterful analysis leaves us with the confidence that we can understand history and, therefore, are not condemned to repeat it. Women, Race & Class makes an outstanding contribution to this endeavor."—Freedomways

"She places in context the often acrimonious debate over the whiteness and elitism of feminism."—The Washington Post Book World
